Thumbs down dusted.... i hope not

ive been having problems with blueish white smoke with my 97, so i started to do some problem solving and found my worst nightmare... i opened the intake box and there was no filter to be seen... i just bought the truck a week ago and its been parked, long story short i figure it has been dusted. so i popped the intake pipe off the turbo and looked at the compressor wheel,i took some pics of the wheel for you guys, i am hoping that she might not be too far gone... will be doing a copression test to see what the actual damage is soon.

Yep dusted..I've seen it a lot with K&N and other washable filters. I would have a oil analysis done and see what it may have done to the bearings..

and that's not the right wheel either.... stick a filter in it and run it...let 'her develop..... start saving your $$$, or give it a good trading off...... it's probably not as bad as it seems.....

if it gets 16-17 mpg, yer good to go....

Thumbs up

Think you maybe OK!
I looked at 1997 F250 that was much worse (pic attached), but she had good compression 420 lbs i think was the lowest and would have bought it if owner would come down in price to compensate for rebuilt turbo and future life taken off motor.
She test drove well, little exhaust smoke cold, non warm. Didn't do an oil analisys but think it would be OK, as the top end would have taken most of the damage.

So when y'all start saying "not good", "not cool" ... what can damaged turbo fins do to the truck? Permanent engine damage? Unfixable?

What symptoms will the truck give off if there is damage from dusted turbos? Bought mine 2 weeks ago (96 f250 7.3L 4x4 CC SB wit 216K on it). From what I can tell it runs fine. When I punch the gas the turbo kicks it up a notch like I would expect.

Just curious.
